The sports world offers plenty on a daily basis to celebrate and discuss -- and this past week was no exception.
First, we have the UK Football Wildcats, who got their first SEC victory since 2011 last Saturday against Vanderbilt. It was only by ten points against a less-than stellar Commodore team. But the first step toward getting out of a hole is to stop digging, and the Cats came through in that regard. Next up – South Carolina.
Meanwhile, Louisville Cardinal fans were celebrating on Sunday, when Teddy Bridgewater got his first start in an NFL game. All he did was pass for over 300 yards without an interception, score a running touchdown and lead his underdog Minnesota Vikings to a surprise victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Nice way to silence the doubters who passed him up through the first round of the draft.
Finally, there was the news last week that majority ownership of our home baseball team, the Louisville Bats, will be passing to a New York group after 28 years of local ownership. Normally, that would put me on high alert, but I'm encouraged by the fact that the former owners, including Ed Glasscock, Steve Trager, the Ulmer family and others, will still have a minority interest. And their assurances that the club will be in good hands and remain here in town make me feel a lot better.
